Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers and are part of the male and female endocrine systems. After 30, levels of vital hormones start to decline, affecting metabolism — how the body gets energy from the foods we eat — appetite, mood, sexual function, reproduction, muscle growth, fat loss, sleep cycles, and more.
Our functional medicine programs optimize metabolic fitness through hormone balance and comprehensive lab testing. Additional treatments are available for men and women, such as fat loss, muscle building, vitality, anti-aging, sports nutrition, and sexual performance.

Or anyone else using the Services.
Because of the rapidly changing ideas about the safety and effectiveness of hormone therapy for anything other than birth control, I feel it is important to be sure that you have information about the risks and benefits of hormone therapy before you take the therapy we have discussed. HRT is approved by the FDA only for prescribed deficiencies.
Using it for other symptoms or problems is considered “off-label” use, and the liability is on the patient, not the doctor. However, when hormone levels are brought back to “normal” for your age, there is much evidence that your overall health benefits. HRT is the most effective treatment for hormone deficiencies. In addition, there may be other long-term beneficial effects of treatment.
Current medical thinking is constantly changing, so you must discuss HRT with your doctor yearly at your annual exam to determine the latest review. Please read the following and sign: I have discussed the reason for taking male or female sex hormones with my doctor and understand why he/she is prescribing them and the risks associated with taking hormones, including but not limited to the possibility of an increased risk of breast or endometrial cancer, blood clotting, stroke, or heart attack. In addition, I understand that there are different risks if I take any HRT medication.
I have discussed this risk and the reasons for taking them with my doctor. I understand that my doctor will do everything he/she knows to do to decrease and minimize the risks of HRT but that there are no guarantees that these measures will be effective at preventing the adverse side effects mentioned above or others that we do not yet know about. Therefore, I accept the risks and unknowns of taking hormone therapy and wish to have my doctor prescribe them for me.
